-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
the loopholes, the revenue you get from that to reducing the deficit. but paul ryan wants to do is take that money from closing loopholes and use it to give bigger tax breaks to people at the top. that's not going to fly. >> we have to take a break. james -- i think you're hanging with us, i don't know if the air ca kisses that harold was blowing to you reached up all the way in new orleans. >> i'll take compliments, particularly from a guy from memphis. >> they're coming at you, we'll take a short break, when we come back, hillary clinton joins the evolution revolution on marriage equality as the movement gathers momentum. some republicans are stuck in a state of denial. we'll discuss, just ahead.

deficit reduction who say this budget won't do it. >> okay, congressman. as you know, house democrats are also out with their budget. joining senate democrats in calling for more revenue as well as spending to create jobs. but paul ryan didn't seem too optimistic about this this morning. take a listen to what he said. >> all the democratic budgets have one theme. more taxes, higher spending, never balancing the budget. if you look at these two budgets, yeah, we're two worlds apart. we're literally on different planets. >> he says you're literally on different planets. do you, therefore, have any hope of a compromise? >> well, not very much with paul ryan. i do believe that as steny hoyer, the himinority whip said he thinks republicans are going to have a difficult time getting votes for this budget. as we remember, the republican presidential candidate in 2012 ran away from the ryan budget which was not nearly as severe as this one is. so he's going to have problems with his own members in the republican conference and on this vote, but, you know, paul ryan is right. we are on very di
out of our deficits, we could save social security, medicare and have an economic growth boom that we haven't seen in a long time. >> california alone in one shale oil field has 100 billion barrels of oil. that is california. >> sean: how stupid, we are a stupid country. we're stupid because we allow the government-- why are you looking at me. >> i'm agreeing with you. >> sean: we're a stupid country. >> we need to get out of our own way, but this is a little bit after small detail, but a very important one for business and for america to understand. last week, one of the rules of the obama administration put out was to say that if you're going forward with any sort of project you're going to have to tell us how much carbon that will put out into the-- so it's called the nipa analysis and that's like putting a ten pound weight on everybody's ankle. >> sean: that's a hundred pound weight. >> it sounds like a minor bureaucratic detail, but it will strangle-- >> you guys will weigh in and i hope you'll pick a fight with you here. i've got to tell you, dana, they're not doing this, not ta
anything intelligent with our budget deficit. so the logical default currency is gold. we had a lull in european problems, but thanks to a lack of regulation -- how else did cyprus get out of hand, especially if the same thing happened in iceland, the lull is over. i think this is one more reminder rich europeans will switch from keeping europe owes in banks to keeping gold in deposit boxes. if you have no exposure to gold, buy some now. sure, most europeans may keep their money in the bank. they live there, that's their life. but the wealthy are looking to pull out money over time and the big beneficiary will be gold. amazingly, the european regulators can't help themselves. their incredible incompetencies makes buying gold the easiest decision in the world. these idiots are the gift that climpgs the gold buy every time they take action and this latest action may be the best when it comes to pushing gold higher than maybe since the reign of the former european central banker chief jean, "the fraud" trichet. carfirmation. only hertz gives you a carfirmation. hey, this is challenger.
step in the right direction. according to the weekly standard after running deficits 350,000 a year for years. the senate hair care center is and according to the sergeant at arms who is responsible for trying out the new model, government subsidized haircuts shaves and shine will be a thing of the past and you the taxpayer will no longer foot the bill for the grooming of your senators. the american taxpayers have forked over 5.25 million dollars for, yes, senate hair care. pretty unbelievable, or maybe not. because we do know how important the perfect haircut is well, to certain senators. remember john edwards? remember this? ♪ i feel pretty, oh so pretty ♪ ♪ i feel pretty and witty and bright ♪ ♪ >> oh, what a classic. that's all the time we have left this evening. as always, thank you for being with us. let not your heart be troubled, the news continues. greta is next and see you back here tomorrow night. greta, take it away. >> greta: this is a fox news alert. an 8th marine has died after a mortar shell explosion during a training accident in nevada. several marines w
unemployed, 42 out of 50 states are facing a budget deficit. and to be honest there is very little leadership coming out of washington. so i think what i tried to do is raise these issues with civility, whether you're republican or democrat, we're all americans. and i think we deserve more. we deserve better. and washington really needs to help us create the kind of leadership and decision making by putting their feet in the shoes of every day americans. that's not what's going on. >> you recently were speaking at the national retail federation and you said that the lack of leadership in washington, i just want to quote you, because i thought it was beautifully said, is sapping the life blood, the soul and the confidence of our country as the world witnessed a lack of leadership in the united states. is that message ever going to get through? a are we reaching a point where you say i grew up poor, i became wealthy, i was able to start a company and it's not going to be able to happen to people in the next generation? >> i think you're bringing up very important question that, you know, let's
deficits and debt. how can you not worry about that. they do seem integrally involved in phobia, a lot of we don't want anybody else coming to this country. >> yeah, yeah, that's -- that's true, chris. it's this idea that they're losing their country. they fear change. they fear -- they're anxious about the change that we see. we see the browning of america. we see, you know, the gay rights movement is preceding at pace. you know, we saw the first female speaker of the house not too long ago. so it's this change that they have a problem dealing with, chris. and let me get to the point about -- >> why would somebody care -- i always wondered about this. why would somebody who is white care about whether the country is white 100 years from now? they're not going to be here. and the people here would be comfortable with it. your nature will change with the country's nature. it does sound like pure racism. if you want the country to be tribally white 100 years from now. i don't know why a black person would care either. why do people speculate the way they think what the country will be li
and the work ahead." and david leonhardt, author of "here's the deal: how washington can solve the deficit and spur growth." i am pleased to have them both on the program. what's the headline coming out of bernke's press conrence? >> i think steady as it goes is the main headline. the fed is going to continue to buy these bonds it has been buying at about the same pace. it's going to continue doing it until sees unemployment fall to about 6.5%. i don't think there are any changed today. i think the most interesting part of the news conference was when bernanke wanted to stay on in the job. although he refused to answer the question he said he and president obama had spokeeb about it "a bit." ihink it's intesng to think about the idea he and obama have talked about whether he wants a third term and how inclined obama is to give it to him. >> rose: i would think if obama is talking to him about it it suggests will obama would like for him to continue. >> i think that's a good assumption. i think obama clearly likes bernanke and thinks on the whole bernanke has done a good job. he has made th
what's called video deficit when they watch the screen passively, they can't really assemble a coherent narrative about what's happening. the way our brains develop, we need some interaction, which a tablet actually supplies because you do something and you get a response for it. it's not a substitute for a loving care giver of some sort in your life, but at least it's responding. >> i do wonder, though, about attention spans. i have two kids, 6 and 10. i'm one of these brooklyn mommies that buys hand made wooden toys from germany andy courages the kids to read books. although when i need them to be quiet, i will hand them the kindle fire. and i do notice that they're a little more -- my son is a little more agitated after playing games on that. is there anything there to worry about really? >> let's start by saying your son's a boy. i'd say based on my experience -- and those who grew occupy without these devices is the same. it's true, all things in moderation, although as part of her expiration of the story, hannah kind of experimented on her own kid and let her youngest play as much
in than in any year in our history, yet we are still going to have a trillion dollar budget deficit. doesn't anyone realize there is a problem here? >> speaker boehner, i understand you met this morning with some of your members on benghazi, there's already been a report done. multiple hearings. are republicans planning further review? are you going to issue subpoenas? >> there were some members who wanted to a conversation to compare notes on what we know and don't know. and frankly there is a lot that we still don't know. so it was a friendly exchange of information and some decisions about a way forward. i any on what happened priorle to september 11, what actually happened on september 11. and then why it was described for weeks after something that it wasn't. when the people were watching this knew it was a terrorist attack. >> the c.r. passed today included some cushion for certain programs like border patrol, to help them get by with the sequester going into effect, but it did not do anything to prevent layoff that is are going to occur at t.s.a., f.a.a., traffic control towers are
that cutting the deficit was the most important issue facing the country. why the gap between what voters say that they want and what lawmakers are doing there in washington? >> because the lawmakers who are developing and passing budgets in washington, d.c. are completely out of touch with what most americans want. look, when paul ryan in that foot ang we just saw said that they want to about a the budget and we don't, either he is not listening or purposely evading the truthful we both want a balanced budget. the issue is how do you balance it? democrats believe we should have a solutions based budget that does three things. number one, that it takes a balanced approach to reducing debt. we've got to reduce debt. number two, that is fair to the middle class. their budget is completely unfair to the middle class. number three, that invest in the right priorities. the smart priorities. their budget completely divests. when the times are tough and families are sitting there trying to figure out what cut do we cut going to an expensive restaurant or cut our kids going to college? what this repu
, to balance the budget, no pressure to wind down these immense deficits, because they can be financed at about nothing. so to companies that might properly be considered bankruptcy candidates can sustain themselves and their precarious lives through borrowing at such rates. >> and that's what we continue seeing. >> this so-called recovery has been painfully and in a very un-american way drawn out, undynamic, and to people who are looking for a job, downright cool. and the fed insists that for reasons of economics as well as humanity, it will continue to do what has not worked. >> and i want to get your take on cyprus and europe, but let me put that aside for a moment. because, you know, chairman ben bernanke commented on this yesterday. someone said to him, what about the downside risk of all of this easy money. and he said, look, there are no issues of inflation. we don't have any issues in terms of, you know, this free money so far. and in fact, it's been helpful to the economy. so, what is the downside risk? how does this end? >> well, this is the greatest and most perilous experiment in th
.s. debt that has been accrued since 2001. aboutrse when we think debt and deficits, there are two kinds of deficit. there are those that invest in human capital or infrastructure or investing in education, and those which do not, which endanger our future by adding to the national debt. and this war deficit was of the second type. third point that i am passionate about, although it is difficult for many people to be passionate about accounting, but i am passionate about the lack of war accounting. one of the purposes of our book and the several book chapters that we have written since then is to argue that bad accounting matters. the u.s. owes nearly a trillion dollars in what business would call deferred compensation to the men and women who fought the war, but this liability does not appear anywhere on the national balance sheet. we did not account for the value iraqe 6658 lives lost in and afghanistan. that is just the troops, not civilians, not contractors, except for small amount of life insurance money. even though civilian government agencies estimate the value of life at $7.20 m
larks newark, new jersey, washington and detroit have all closed schools to cut budget deficits. and that brings us to education nation. which is part of an ongoing commitment by nbc news, to foster a national dialogue about the future of education in america. today education nation is on the road in detroit with he had nbc's education correspondent, rehema ellis. >> we want to talk about what's happening to the schools in michigan. but in detroit, we can't help but talk about what's happening in the city of detroit. joining me right now is the governor of michigan, rick snyder. and the news of the day is that on monday, your emergency financial manager for detroit is going to go to work. there's a lot of controversy around it. people are protesting, saying it's unconstitutional. that he's going to sell off some iconic pieces of the city in order to balance the budget. what do you say? >> well it is legal. this is a crisis. and we need to turn it around. and if you look at, we've had success with emergency managers. if you look at detroit public schools, they've had one for the
be in a deficit in 10 years the argument however is that the senate budget creates jobs and economic growth from the middle out. now, that's according to the author. senator pattie murray. for the democrats the vote is a really big accomplishment. >> first of all, over the last two decades the average budget resolution considered 78 amendments. we have done 101. the average vote arama 70 amendments. twice as many. doing this has been a her could herculessen feet. senator murray and senator sessions. >> during the vote senators were facing more than 500 amendments which were filed but 70 were voted on. of course when you do take a 13 hour six minute vote there has to be a little bit of humor. >> it is good to say that as -- as of this time, 5:00 a.m., there has not been a day without a budget being passed in the united states senate. >> and some interesting observations from the vote. all democrats voted yeah with the exception of for up for re-election 2014. unfriendly to democrats. mark beg gich from alaska. baucus from montana. pryor from arc. hagan from north carolina. recently passed the rya
as the chicago public school system faces a reported billion dollar deficit. alderman willie cochran's ward, constituents have been calling all day. >> some cases we are happy, in some cases we are not so happy. >> reporter: on the plus side, the district says the savings will allow major investments in surviving schools including adding 70 libraries, science labs, even air conditioning. for many it's not what's gained but what's lost and where. neighborhood schools in some of chicago's poorest communities. the decisions were based on low enrollment but others say race made a role. an outraged carrie austin, an alderman, told "the chicago tribune," quote, every time the whites go to screaming and hollering, they back off and steam roll over black and brown folks. not this time. and she's not the only one who believes that. you think it's the black communities that often are asked to sacrifice first? >> in this case, yes, i do. yes, i do. >> reporter: this is 70th street in the heart of the city's south side and this is the local elementary school. parents are proud of it. the sign up there
care and eliminate the deficit in ten years. total cuts, $4.6 trillion, and given it has zero chance of passing in the democratic-controlled senate, it's dedz on arrival. >> lawmakers in the house and senate approved legislation to fund the government through the end of september. that avoids the risk of a partial federal shutdown. in the process, they are on spring break for a couple weeks. what's your take on this? >> my take is the whole financial dysfunction of our congress is mind blowing. you look at this week. let's say frederick, maryland, where there's air traffic control that will be shut. a tower that was built and refurbished by the stimulus money. so stimulus money went into this tower. the government saying it's a priority. and the the government because of its dysfunction saying we have to shut is down. that's a perfect representation, i think, of how washington is not doing its job. we can't even pass a budget. it can't even run the books. there's no strategy. when you look at some of the forced spending cuts, you see exactly a lack of strategy in american finances. t
of growth we are spirits as a country collectively would be uplifted again. the best deficit-reduction program is a growing economy and strangely if you see the debate in washington today very little is about economic growth and a lot of it is about what my dad would say, eat your broccoli. it's about the austerity. it's about the toughest things that have to get done. don't get me wrong but they are much easier to get done in the context of high sustained growth where jobs are being created and are of purpose and value for people to be able to pursue their dreams. i have three suggestions i don't think our that partisan. they are not necessarily ideological that if we pause and say we will have the food fight on all the other stuff and there's good things to fight it out, trust me, the we could get to the point that we could have high year sustained growth one would be to create a patriotic policy based on american ingenuity and innovation and north american resources. second, reform the immigration system and move towards something that would be part of the high growth econ
of that deficit and debt issue years ago if you go back to polling young people. they said that was an important issue a long time ago. >> host: i'm sure that's true, but is it really true that young people are thinking about entitlement reform and long-term tax reform, that kind of thing? >> guest: i think they care about the basic principle behind it. i don't know that people in this generation -- anyone in this country has a detailed plan to address these things, except some people in congress. i think that we understand the principle behind needing to make decisions and not wanting to be stuck with having to pay this bill down the road. i think that's something that this generation has been aware of, because we've been talking about it for a long time. >> host: what -- and not just sort of general rising an entire generation, but what do you think the millenial view is on the current state of the economy? things are not good and not looking good particularly for the future of this generation. they might be optimistic, but they're also wrong in some sense. >> guest: well, i'm not sure they're
, the deficit, the long term budget plan and they haven't cleaned up their room. while the president is pushing ahead with his second term priorities today, he hosted a 28 brand new american citizens at the white house including 13 service members. >> after avoiding the problem for years, the time has come to fix it once and for all. the time has come for a comprehensive, sensible immigration reform. we are making progress but we've got to finish the job. we've just got at this point to work up the political courage to do what is required to be done. so i expect a bill to be put forward. i speck the debate to begin next month. i want to sign that bill into law as soon as possible. >> what if anything can get done while congress is away? politico's marty kay, can the president make the most of these two weeks? can he do things while congress is away? >> he can probably be very effective while congress is away of they're scattered around the country and the world. he can use this time to talk about immigration, a little about gun control if he wants to. what we heard at the end of last week befor
on the possible deficit reduction deal. hi, john. >> it's an interesting blend of confrontation and cooperation. call it a controlled battle because you've got the u.s. senate today taking up a bill to avert a government shutdown by sustaining government funding beyond march 27th. the house has already passed the bill. there are differences between the two chambers and the two parties on what they want to do to the effects of the the bill. it smoothed out some things. made it easier for the pentagon to adjust. the senate has other departments which it's trying to help. still some disagreements there. but they expect to be worked out by the end of the week. at the same time, there's a huge gap between the two long-term budget plans that the two parties are pushing. and john boehner over the weekend said, we're done with tax increases. he was repeating that position. the house white house responded, the senior adviser, saying no deal is possible as long as john boehner is in that place. so that's where we are, sue. you've got on the one hand the two parties working together. they are like my to a
exaggerated by looking at year to date, a boon. the boon right now, at a 56 basis point deficit to the treasuries. that's a wide spread. and the last two-day chart of the euro versus the dollar. should it break through 1.28.80, it could challenge the current four-month lows versus the greenback. sue, back to you. >> rick, thank you very much. >>> some new clues about the state of the job market today. the number of americans filing unemployment benefits rising slightly last week to 336,000. a tad below estimates. we've seen a number of job cuts announced recently. so is the labor market running out of steam? listen to what "mad money's" jim cramer said earlier today. >> tens of thousands of people are going to be laid off within the next month. >> whatever little. >> and that's going to show up in the numbers, in that 330,000 employment, that may be the last good one. bernanke is not smoking dope, pot, whatever they call it now. >> well, is he right? joining us now is "the wall street journal's" chief economics correspondent john hillsenrath. good to see you. >> good to be here.
deficit. the main attraction at these gambling halls is the new slot machines. we americans spend more money on slots than on movies, baseball, and theme parks combined. but with slots, there is the potential for a dangerous side effect: gambling addiction. and more people are addicted to slots than any form of gambling. [slot machines beeping] >> this is what slot machines used to look like, where you pull the handle and hope for three of a kind. [slot machine beeping] this is what they look like today. the modern slots are like high-tech video games that play music and scenes from tv shows. you can play hundreds of lines at once, and instead of pulling a handle, you bet by pushing buttons, which means each bet can be completed in as little as 3 1/2 seconds. it looks like great fun, but it can be dangerously addictive. >> whether or not it's their intention, the gambling industry is designing machines that can addict people. >> mit anthropology professor natasha schull has studied gambling addiction for over 15 years. she's interviewed gamblers, casino owners, and slot machine designe
president obama and republicans reach a long-term agreement on reducing the deficit? >> the answer, different depending on which republican you ask. house speaker john boehner doesn't sound very hopeful. he's standing firm against the idea of increasing tax rates, increasing tax revenue. >> the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be to balance the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we're going to get very far. and this is the whole issue. we have a spending problem here in washington, and it's time to solve the problem. >> we're hearing different things coming from various republicans, including senator bob corker. he's a republican of tennessee. he says he's optimistic about the possibility of what's called a grand bargain, and he's open to the idea of raising tax revenues to cut the deal under certain circumstances. senator corker's joining us now from capitol hill. senator, thanks very much for coming in. >> good to be with you, wolf, thank
a knowledge deficit you didn't have the last time around. you someone with obama's experience. all of these three guys are gone. the question is, does that mean that the wheels, the brakes have come off the train? and that now it's more of a runway car? or you say, no, not at all. it might be there. and there will be people who might not have the same amount of yearns of experience -- years of experience but are counter point to the others. it's unclear to me yet to what extend the forum, the netanyahu relied upon, how is that going to be? what is it to mean the knowledge of the deficit of experience? but i do think from what -- the key factor he definitely sees that his goal is israel be a normal western country. the middle class has a better quality of life. but he said that the road to that is dealing with the pam issue -- palestinian issue. everything else you have to work it out. i don't know though you know what that means. you have bennett gave an interview or somewhere quoted in an column when a reporter asked him about it he said i have no clue. it's guy on the inner circl
, and then it part of the new party on the right. i think you have a knowledge deficit that you did not have the last time around. these three guys are gone, and the question is, does that mean the brakes have come off the train? now it is more of a runaway car? you say no, lapid is there. have theo may not same experience, but maybe our counterpoints to some of the other forces. what is unclear to me yet is to what extent that for rum -- forum, how central is that going to be? and will that knowledge deficit of experience mean yeah g? he definitely sees that his goal is that israel be a normal country than the middle class has a better quality of life, it sounds familiar to people here. that is dealing with the palestinian issue. work this out.to i don't know what that means. and it gave an interview and was , when the reporter asked him about iran, he said, i have no clue. this is a guy on the inner sanctum of israel. he says, i have no clue. i just wonder how this constellation is going to configure itself. i would hope that a lot of time, the foreign diplomats, whether it is in europe, our count
.6 trillion annual budget, he can manage a $16 trillion deficit, but somehow he can't figure out how to keep tours open for the american people? he can't even figure that out? how is he supposed to figure out all those other heady things bob is talking about the real serious decisions which he can't control that he does control which is the white house. bill: talk about the job loss. that eventually will come. bob, if you were working in the white house would you have closed off the tours? i mean is that the decision you would have reached for? >> i would have canceled toilet paper order first. the reality is, but, look, you know, when brad talks about this, there are now boats in newport news, virginia, in for retrofitting have been stopped, the work on them. there are airports that are in fact airports closed down, small ones around the country. there have been furloughs done at the border. there are a lot of things going on here that should not be looked at. bill: it will not look good if you have 35,000,000 members of congress and their family members on the south lawn -- >> i'm not argu
the deficit, creates jobs, ensures global peace and security. t fights a good fight often without a lot of recognition but just doing a good job. not speaking today on behalf congressional black caucus. we have to hold any president ccountable in terms of checks and balances. that is part of the three ranches of government, udiciary, executive and legislati legislative. we have a duty and ensure that y to people have a voice in their guest: let government. what the house of representatives is about. written to president obama and respectfully have sked him to really justify and give us the information about the asis upon which -- legal basis -- the use of drones is engaged in as a result of efforts. we are waiting for the response from them on that. think it is important we ask any president questions as members of congress, it is our responsibility to do that and to personally continue to do that. i think that it president has image changed america's and role in the world and is phenomenal job. but that doesn't mean i won't exercise my duties and rights as ask the of congress to hard q
revenue in than any year in our history, and yet we will still have a trillion- dollar budget deficit. does not anybody realize there is a problem here? >> i understand you met with some of your senators and members on the issue of benghazi. [indiscernible] republicans planning further review? are you planning more subpoenas? >> there are members who wanted to compare notes on what we know and what we do not know. frankly there is a lot we still do not know. it was a friendly exchange of information, and some decisions about a way forward. [indiscernible] on what happened prior to september 11, what actually happened on september 11, and then why it was described for weeks as some think it was not, when the people who were watching this knew it was a terrorist attack. . included cushions for programs like border control to help them get by this question, but it does not do anything to prevent layoffs for traffic controllers per couldn't congress have done more for leaving -- before leaving on its recap -- on its recess the prevent these layoffs? but listen, under this bill, some agenc
